What I love about Christmas is in my mind the world becomes Dickensonian. While White Christmas isn't Dickensonian, it's close. Every time I watch this movie (& that has been a lot!) I imagine getting snowed in at a lovely inn in Connecticut with Hollywood-esq entertainment. How those sets & costume changes get through all that snow, is never a concern for me. I just imagine sitting there & soaking it in. Then I realize I'm doing that ,only it's 2000 something & I'm on a couch.
But that is what White Christmas does. It makes you forget you're on the couch, & you remember it's Christmas!!! This is why I think this movie should be on your Christmas movie list.
